I was born and raised in Medellin during the time of the Medellin Cartel. My family told me stories about the difficult times, and I have met people that were part of the Cartel, so I know everything about the Cartel and Pablo Escobar. I would say Narcos is a good show on Netflix, but I’m going to tell you the facts and the real story.

    I am a big fan of Narcos... it was amazing seeing the city, and see important places from his life. Our guide, Andres also took us to the Pablo Escobar Village. It was interesting to see why and how some people actually supported him. I wish we could have also seen Le Cathedral.. but I guess it was not possible in a 90 minute tour.

    I am a big fan of Pablo series be it Netflix or elsewhere; this tour gave me information that is nowhere to be found on the internet, only the locals who have been in the city of Medellin can tell you the real secrets; the guide has been in touch with Pablo's family for real, it was so enthralling to know about it all, loved it, Hats off!!
